John Deere recently introduced the 75D mid-sized hydraulic excavator. According to the John Deere site, this conventional boom, reduced tail swing unit weighs in at 17,637 pounds, has a 15-foot, 1-inch dig depth and is perfect for light residential, site development, underground and landscaping duties.
“This excavator’s reduced tail swing and 360-degree rotation enable it to get into tight spaces,” said Mark Wall, excavator product marketing manager for John Deere. “Once you’re there, its power and precision take over.”
The 75D has a 54-net hp diesel certified to EPA Interim Tier 4 emission standards and Deere’s exclusive Powerwise) engine/hydraulic management system that maximizes power output, saves fuel and delivers smooth, multifunction operation just like the rest of John Deere’s D-Series excavators.
“If you’re a small contractor or landscaper who needs pinpoint metering for control yet a lot of production in a highly maneuverable, fuel-efficient package, the 75D is a great unit,” Wall said. “Generous hydraulic flow and increased swing torque will help you load more trucks and open more trench.”
Big productivity doesn’t mean more fuel consumption when you’re running a Deere. The excavator’s “E” working mode can save fuel by running more efficiently compared to the previous model’s “P” mode, while providing similar production. An auto-idle feature helps make the most out of every drop of fuel.
